Youth Mental Health First Aid Training is March 9

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
hosted by
Family Counseling Center
Southern Seven Health Department

Friday, March 9, 2018,   8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Free Workshop with Lunch Provided

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance abuse problem. Learn an action plan to help. Sometimes first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR or calling 911. Sometimes the first aid is YOU.

Learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Anyone 18 or older can take this course, but it is recommended for those who regularly have contact with young people ages 12-18: teachers, coaches, social workers, faith leaders, and other caring citizens.

Course will be held at the Shawnee Community College Metro Center, Room 105, located at 5385 Industrial Park Road, Metropolis.
